You've heard it before, “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”- known as the American postal service creed. Which means that pile of mail is headed your way, no matter what! So when stacks of bills, notices, catalogs, magazines, and flyers make their way into your home- and you truly want to get organized– you need both a routine to deal with it as well as a place to put it! That's why I am sharing these 6 awesome mail organizer ideas!
#1: Desktop Mail Sorter
This mail sorter has 2 slots to hold mail (you could use one for bills waiting to be paid and the other for flyers/notices/invites that require an action or a response). The front slots can be used for pencils and pens and the drawer can hold a few pieces of stationery- perfect for when you need to send a quick note into school!
